Happy team, happy customers
As the saying goes… and that is why we always encourage new ideas to make Ocasta a better place to work for everyone. To break barriers and produce award-winning work we’ve created an environment of low stress and high efficiency.
The magic formula so far
Flexi-time, freedom and ownership of work, 13:00 finish Fridays, conference and learning allowances, weekly fika (coffee and cake break), monthly one-to-ones, personal desk budgets, and standing desks. These are just some of the things we have introduced to make the Ocasta studios a pretty great place to get lots of top-notch work done.
